  • How Does the Paintless Dent Repair Process Work?

    • Remove access panels behind the dent.
    • Use a non-abrasive metal tool to remove the dents and bring the metal back to its original shape.
    • Reinstall the access panels.
    • Use glue pulling to access dents hard to reach due to the frame or bracing.
  • What are the benefits of PDR?

    The most important benefit is quality. This method is the closest you can get to the dent never happening in the first place. No grinding, bondo, fillers, or primers are needed because your original factory paint is not disturbed. There are no problems with filler or paint shrinkage months after the repair as is typical with most body shop repairs.

    Cost is also a major benefit of PDR. Repairs are typically between one-quarter to one-third the cost of conventional dent repair.

    Time savings is yet another advantage. Many dents can be fixed in less than an hour. Hail damage is typically fixed in one day with PDR. A full repair may take 2-3 weeks for the same type of damage.

  • Will my dents be 100% gone?

    On minor dents, in most cases, yes. The deeper the dent, the more difficult it is to repair. Even on larger dents, most people are amazed at the results.

  • Can any dent be fixed?

    No. The most important factors in determining if a dent can be repaired by PDR are depth and location. Dents the size of a dinner plate or larger can be fixed successfully, as long as they are not too deep. On the other hand, some dents that are as small as a dime but very deep, cannot be fixed using PDR because the metal is too stretched. Cracked paint can also be an indication that a dent is too deep.

    The most common dents fixed are the size of a golf ball and under. Most (about 95%) minor dents can be repaired. About 5% of minor dents can’t be fixed due to depth or location. Areas such as some quarter panel opening lips, some forward areas of heavily braced hoods, or the very edges of some panels are examples of bad locations.
